that while they could directly administer the different garages, that we have in front of us, they consider the fact that the added oversight and community relations provided by these organizations are in the best interest of the garage and the city. i think and heard and believe that many of you have heard from the leadership of the union square community about the impact that this organization has had in union square within a part of town that sees some of the most densely traveled and densely parking situations that we have in the city. so, with that, colleagues, ask for your support for this and we will proceed. >> great. i assume, colleagues, that we need a roll call on this. we can have a roll call, madam chair. >> on item 16, supervisor cohen? cohen aye. supervisor farrell? farrell aye. supervisor kim? kim aye. supervisor mar? mar aye. supervisor wiener? wiener aye. supervisor yee? yee aye. supervisor avalos? avalos no. supervisor breed? breed aye. supervisor campos? campos aye. president chiu? chiu aye. supervisor chu? chu no. there are 9 ayes and 2 no's. >> the resolution is adopte
government and to the feds for your proper use of that. the president of the ndaa is accountable to nobody. he's already been accountable to the voters and that's it. the constitution provides that understood -- the founders understood it is in the state interest to kill somebody and they have in the constitution a provision called a bill of mark, marqe. i congratulate you and i hope you will urge the congress and the president to use their proper constitutional powers and have the killing done by congress where at least there is some accountability. thank you.

that some of us will be glad that we won't have a regular mcdonald's patron in our midst. [laughter] >> i think that we will miss the fact that -- well, actually i'm not sure we'll all miss the fact that carmen rarely breaks with her modern colleagues, except on the critical issue of cat de-clawing. oh, you remember that. i think many of us will miss the fact that she has been so hard working that we were all surprised that today she didn't submit any new legislative proposals and at the last minute she asked me four tough questions about the ndaa which i appreciated. and i will just say for me, one thing i'm not going to miss as you leave is that no one is going to wonder after today if i have a sister on the board of supervisors.

that the arts commission had unlawfully withheld information it was to keep us from getting our rights serviced. but that win of 4 to 3 was not enough to overcome what the board of supervisors did to make sure it won't be enough for an action to be taken. you essentially replaced all members and we won 4 to 3 and additionally you passed the sunshine ordinance with new members to repeal it's rule that the majority could take the decision on instead of requiring 6 votes. so only 7 people on the board were there and that was a couple of votes against us. your sabotage of open government sadly is bearing fruit. >> next speaker and thanks supervisors i'm an attorney, an mba that has been long associated with this city but i've got some positive comments to make. this poem reflects the poem encourage - i co-founded the poetry fountains and we have a public service to get you poems from the movement we'll have on public event to encourage education in february. this is the confession and it is like honest i didn't and this is for you the board of supervisors san francisco. our legislative lady of mie

served style of artwork that is primarily used for the creation of video games, movies, fashion and industry. it is drawn on computers, photoshop, corel painter and thus, l is not a hard copy of it. what we have done is put an array of monitors that can slide show and show this artwork which is very eye catching and i think that it speaks to a lot of people in the san francisco area that are involved in you know creation of these video games, movies, high-tech and we are hoping to serve that market by having a interesting area where creative professionals can come and enjoy this artwork and relax with a glass of wine or a cold beer or a cup of coffee. and that is just the basic overview of our venue. and we are getting a good response from neighborhood and they are looking forward to us opening from everyone that we have heard and we just hope to move forward. >> a quick question, have you reached out to the district supervisor? >> we have not, spoken with her directly, accept for the letters that we sent. >> if you could speak into the mic. >> we have not spoken with our superv
us really going through everything and ensuring that we dotted every i and crossed every t and i know it was a lot of work for their staff. largely, the proposal would amend the municipal election code to incorporate the state law allowing the nomination procedures for city college and board of education for example to continue to be governed by state law but also changing some of the dates for the board of supervisors and for other -- our may yoirl race as well sx, also we made some other nominations according to the advice of elections, around the circulation of badges and filing fees, i would also like to ask the rules committee to consider making some amendments today, further clean-up of this legislation, one is to section 205 and this would push back the nomination deadline for all candidates to match those of the mayor and the board of supervisors so this would be by the 146 day before the municipal election, it also specifies the period by which the candidates and the mayor of supervisor may circulate their nomination papers. section 220 and 260 follow along the lines of this
, allow our military to arrest and detain american citizens on u.s. soil without a warrant or due process. this would repeat the forced incarceration of the 1940s of 120,000 japanese americans who spent years in interment camps without notices of charges, right to an attorney, or right to a trial. from my perspective and the perspective of many constitutional scholars, these indefinite detention provisions violate fundamental american legal principles of the presumption of innocence, our fifth amendment right to due process, the sixth amendment right to fair trial, the eighth amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, and these provisions would allow activists and journalists to be detained for exercising their first amendment rights to free speech. i want to take a moment and thank the large coalition that has come together to ask us to support this. there are dozens of organizations in the city including the bill of rights defense committee, the coalition for safe san francisco, the asian law caucus, the labor council, the san francisco 99% coalition. i want to thank su

many candidates are under suspicion for drug use so i thought i would bring that out to san francisco. second suggestion is that in an election where there is a residency required, ie, board of supervisors, if there is a written question about whether a candidate lives in a district, then it's public information, how the investigation goes and then the candidate that's being questioned is required by the election code to put in writing that he does live in the district. now, this was in regards to a situation that was done entirely in writing in 2008 and to this day, the particular person i'm talking about still refuses to put in writing whether he lived in the district or he was running to be supervisor, and the only thing i have to say, if you can't put it in writing, that brings up a legitimate question. thank you. >> okay. any other public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, any thoughts? is there a motion to forward this item to the full board? >> [inaudible]. >> could we first take a motion to make the amendments that i had? >> thank you. is there a motio

join us in the pledge of allegiance? i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america, and to the republic for which it stands; one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. >> colleagues, we have copies of the january 15th, 2013 board meeting minutes. could i have a motion to approve those anixctionv motion by supervisor campos, seconded by supervisor farrell. without objection, those minutes are approved. madam clerk, any communications? >> i have no communications, mr. president. >> and could you read our consent agenda items 1 through 12? >> mr. president, before doing so, i wanted to present a point of information. this morning our controller mr. rosenfield identified item number 3, the supplemental appropriations specifically the district attorney positions on item number 3 to have originally been rejected by the board and the mayor in the annual budget for the current year. section 3.15 of the administrative code states that when any supplemental appropriation ordinance subsequent to the adoption of the budget for the current year contain
with the golden gate national parks conservancy, and the national park service. so, this allowed us to not only put on a great sell braaetionverctiontion, but to also fundamentally change the experience that the 10 million visitors a year who come to the golden gate bridge have. if you've been out there, we've built a 3500 square foot pavilion. it's a visitors pavilion and welcoming center. there are interpretive panels and photographs and videos that you can see there and merchandise that tell you a lot about the golden gate bridge. and we have some artifacts in that pavilion that have never been seen before by the public. so people now can actually get a sense of their rich history of the golden gate bridge and how it was built and the men and women in labor who built that bridge. and, so, it's really fantastic. we also improve the outdoor plaza area so there's more open space. we improve the pedestrian and bicycle path. so, really it's a much more pleasant place to visit now so we're really, really proud of that. on the fiscal side of things at the district, it has been a difficult time, as
